NNA denies Hariri-Bassil meeting took place

BEIRUT: The state-run National News Agency said Friday that Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil did not meet former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, contradicting earlier media reports that the two had met this week in Jeddah.

The website for the Free Patriotic Movement, Tayyar, said Bassil returned home Thursday following a meeting as part of Hariri’s ongoing consultations regarding the presidential election.

The NNA itself reported Friday morning that Bassil had held talks with Hariri in Saudi Arabia.
